Doggy Daycare

Doggy Daycare At The Big Backyard

**Please note – a reservation is always required. Current clients can make a last minute reservation if we have room.**

Doggy Daycare is our primary service at The Big Backyard. It works much like daycare for children. Your dog is dropped off at our doggy daycare facility and can play and socialize in a supervised environment. We offer 8,000 square feet of play space; 5,000 square feet inside which is climate controlled year round (heated in the winter and air-conditioned in the summer!), and 3,000 square feet outside which is always accessible to the dogs through doggy doors.

The inside area is divided into 3 playrooms and each playroom has a securely fenced outdoor area for outside play and potty breaks. During the summer months, pools are placed in each of the outdoor areas to help keep your dog cool and allow dogs with a “water-fetish” to indulge! Wouldn’t it be great to come home from a long day’s work to a tired but happy dog?

Tail Wagin' Reviews

(Border Collie - 1 1/2 years old)

“My mom knew when she got a border collie, that my energy level would be through the roof! Before I ever arrived in Denver, she had already checked out The Big Backyard for doggy daycare to help me burn off steam. Instead of leaving to go to work every day, my mom is a stay-at-home web designer. But I don’t think when she is at home that she should be working. I think she should just play with me!.

Us border collies have what some people might call OBCD (obsessive border collie disorder). If my mom is working and I get bored, sometimes I decide to help around the house or the yard, doing things like yanking up all of the loose landscape fabric and putting it into a pile. So when my mom is busy with all day meetings, or on a deadline, or has a crazy schedule that may keep her working a little late, I get to go to The Big Backyard for the day, where my creative energy can be expended in a constructive manor. When I come home, I’m usually pretty tired so I don’t mind if mom is busy, I just take a much-needed nap! Thanks Big Backyard!”
